I was notified yesterday that JoAnn passed away.  Annie Smith called me and told me. JoAnn and her husband attended the last two reunions and she was sure an inspiration to all.  You knew she was ill, but she was a fighter.  She would tell you she really enjoyed coming to the reunions.  RIP my friend.  Untill we meet again.

I was saddened to hear of JoAnn's passing.  I had several good conversations with her at our last two reunions.  She was such a brave, strong lady -  a fighter who enjoyed life.  I was looking forward to seeing her at our next reunion.  My deepest symphony to her family.  Until we meet again , JoAnn.....Kay

JoAnn was a dear.  Suffered and fought and still always had a smile and a sweet word.  Blessings to her family as you go through this time of grief!  Darlene
